Identity Consult were appointed as Project Managers, Contract Administrators and Cost Consultants by Waterstons, to manage the refurbishment of their new HQ building at Aykley Heads in Durham. The project scope was to gut the existing internal partitions and open out the cellular spaces to create a more open plan office. The project included a full re-wire of the building for power and data, and upgrading to LED lighting throughout.
Identity Consult oversaw the project and put a structure in place which enabled Waterstons to continue their normal day to day business, whilst we managed the process. The design team, led by GT3 Architects, undertook detailed stakeholder engagement with all business functions to produce a detailed design. Identity Consult used this detailed design to procure a contractor using a Traditional procurement route, to ensure the quality and feel of design was maintained. A competitive tender process was undertaken and following tender review by the client team, Project Interiors were selected as the main contractor.
The project completed on budget, with Waterstons moving in on 7th January 2019.
